La Chanson

(Le Serpent)

in English

What we would not do for some love, so close to the world, off the wall and back

 

you sitck out your tongue, you swallow a breath

 

or is pain after the effort, a small crack?

 

You with your body probes, I don't know, I know, I never knew

 

where were the walls behind all those doors?

 

I look at the road above your shoulders.

 

I like your feet to walk all over me

 

your big tail off

 

to reverse roles, to see some of the other dying

 

What we would not do for some love

 

I let the sun melt on wasted flowers

 

that your robes perhaps embrace

 

you know the blue dress

 

that night murders

 

morning, when the bodies are tired

 

we always applaud

 

Higher darkness to light

 

when you walk in front of me

 

there are dark stones

 

the palace destroyed, forced to break

 

bending your head you draw a forest

 

to lose with me entwined

 

the neck is a wonderful place

 

to break the kisses

 

you look so beautiful

 

asteland on the edge of your lips

 

to bite your skin until it bleeds

 

impossible dreams

 

the little box and it's porcelain casket

 

to believe that the cliffs

 

are the brand of your teeth

 

put anywhere

 

the insect drinks day and night

 

our pain

 

small animal on the back to wait

 

ready for lightening

 

we will make the world, that's it

 

make the world a few seconds

 

then goes the white hankerchief

 

lying on your back looks like

 

a black butterfly when he is away

 

What we would not do for some love

 

I want to write more

 

even anger in our bellies

 

it's difficult to follow

 

to write more against your body

 

but my mouth is dead

 

I just made love with a man
